"Useful idiots".  They sent Benedict Arnold to India because they couldn't trust him.   Once a traitor, always a traitor,

Yes, they can't be trusted.  But that was after they lost the war.  Arnold simply had a realization that he was on the wrong side (his Loyalist wife convinced him).

Oh you...

Arnold was pissed because he didn't get the Continental Army promotion he wanted. 

You know that.

Don't you?

Traffic is seldom blocked on the Mobius Highway.  But the ants crawl on it nicely. too.

What I love about Islam:

1. Muslims are good with clockwork and demolition work.

2. Are willing to sacrifice everything for what they believe in.

3. And save all the delicious bacon for the rest of us.

((Hey. I'm joking. Don't crucify me.))

Human motivation vs success ...
#2 is why int he future there will be no Infidels left or Left either.  Lack of sufficient motivation is a death wish.  See Europe today.  N America tomorrow.

Finished the travelogue on Ibn Batutta a few days ago.  Wonderful adventure modern and medieval.

Glad to see that people aren't really Islamophilic here. I'm glad people have stopped calling Islam the 'religion of peace'. It's so stupid to do that. I was recently in Jakarta with my dad and I almost ran for cover when I heard someone shouting 'Allah u akhbar' through a hailer. A religion of peace should not send people scrambling for cover when its cleric says a prayer.

Well at least one person here is Islamaphobic ... but he has his reasons.  Religion of Peace is a double entendre.  You can't have peace without justice, and in the Muslim POV, you can't have justice unless all people volunteer or are forced to become Muslim.  And I hope you learn to appreciate the wonderful variety of people in the world.
